Machine Learning Foundation

Machine learning teaches computers to do what comes naturally to humans and animals: learn from experience. Machine learning algorithms use computational methods to “learn” information directly from data without relying on a predetermined equation as a model.

Machine learning uses two types of techniques: supervised learning, which trains a model on known input and output data so that it can predict future outputs, and unsupervised learning,which finds hidden patterns or intrinsic structures in input data. In this course you will learn about different and most popular algorithms of supervised learning.
